Traceability tags allow the user to locate his run time resources that were created based on a specific IaC resource, detect drifts from IaC templates and trace the differences between cloud and code. In order to perform Drift Detection, each resource must be uniquely tagged. Tagging of resources can be done manually, automatically (using Yor), or by using the Bridgecrew tagging bot (Via Yor).

How to Enable Traceability

From Settings, select Code Repository Settings and enable the Tagging Bot toggle.
